July Boxycharm Try-On

I know this is coming a little late for July, but I was on vacation and didn’t get to open my box of Boxycharm goodies until I got home!

How Boxycharm Works:

Boxycharm is $21 per month. This price includes all the products as well as shipping charges. Inside your box you get 4 or 5 full size products and a paper describing what each product it and how much it would usually cost. All boxes are worth AT LEAST $100. Mine was definitely over that this month.

My Box this Month:

Farmacy Bright On Vitamin C Mask: I still haven’t tried this product out…I know I keep meaning to! I’ve just been taking my makeup off and going right to bed without using a face mask, but hopefully tonight I will finally try this out! Until then, I can’t give you a review except to say that this product is usually expensive!

Chella Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Cream: This is the perfect eyebrow product to travel with! Unfortunately, I just got back from my vacation. If you really like to fill in your brows and do it quickly, this is a great product. I’m not sure it’s going to replace my current eyebrow products, but it’s something I’ll keep for the future.

Note Luminous Silk Compact Blusher: I LOVE the shade that came this month – I actually don’t have any other blush like it! It’s a beautiful peach shade and it is pretty pigmented so be careful about that. Awesome product!

Crown Fuego Eyeshadow Palette: We’ve gotten lots of Crown products in past boxes, but I think this is my favorite of their products yet! The colors in this palette are beautiful and the pans are huge! Loving this so far!

Wander Beauty Unlashed Volume and Curl Mascara: This was my least favorite product in the box. It just didn’t put enough product on my eyelashes and I like a LOT of mascara! However, I did really like it for my lower lashes so I’ll be using it for that!

That’s it for the box this month! Did you love any of the products? Make sure you check out my video trying them on!

Dog Picks Out My Makeup!

This is a fun tag that has been going around YouTube so, of course, I had to try it out with Mila! Two Mila posts in one week – how lucky are you!? With a little practice, Mila got pretty good at selecting what makeup she wanted me to wear, until she got bored. Enjoy this silly makeup tutorial!

April Boxycharm Try-On

I LOVE the Boxycharm box this month – I wasn’t disappointed by a single product!

How Boxycharm Works:

Boxycharm is $21 per month. This price includes all the products as well as shipping charges. Inside your box you get 4 or 5 full size products and a paper describing what each product it and how much it would usually cost. All boxes are worth AT LEAST $100. Mine was definitely over that this month.

My Box this Month:

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner Face Mask: This tiny little bottle costs $47 usually! Quite a deal considering I only paid $21 for this whole box. I have yet to try this out, but I’m planning to tonight. It’s just so expensive I feel like I should save it!

Tarte Tarteist PRO Glow Liquid: I’ve never actually owned a liquid highlighter before so I was excited to try this out! While it definitely isn’t a blinding highlight, it does have a nice glow and can be built up or added to with powder highlight. i might even try mixing this in with my foundation.

The BrowGal Eyebrow Gel: This is pretty average eyebrow gel that I used after I had already filled in my brows. I’m looking forward to trying this out on a no-makeup makeup day!

Adesse Hi Definition Liquid Lipstick: I was thinking this would be more of a matte finish, but it definitely isn’t. It’s comparable to ColourPop ultra satin lips, maybe with even more gloss. I love the color I got!

ColourPop My Little Pony Eyeshadow Palette: This is too cute! Not only do I love the packaging of this, but I love the eyeshadow product inside! I’ve only used ColourPop single shadows, but the ones in the palette seemed high quality as well!

Fun Spring Makeup Tutorial

Ever have those days where you see some colorful eyeshadows and you just HAVE to make a look with them? No? Just me? Oh well, that’s basically what happened here. I’m not as keen on the blue inner corners as I thought I would be, but I wouldn’t have known until I tried! Let me know what you think and what your fun makeup ideas for spring are!

February BoxyCharm Try-On

I’m changing it up a bit over on my YouTube channel. Instead of just showing the products I got in my Boxycharm box this month, I’m also trying them out for the first time!

How Boxycharm Works:

Boxycharm is $21 per month. This price includes all the products as well as shipping charges. Inside your box you get 4 or 5 full size products and a paper describing what each product it and how much it would usually cost. All boxes are worth AT LEAST $100. Mine was definitely over that this month.

My Box this Month:

Three Crown Brushes for the Face: This is now the third month in a row we have gotten a product from Crown cosmetics. Interesting… Anyway, I do like these brushes – they are soft and seem to stand up well during washes. I especially liked the biggest of the three, which I used to contour my face with in my video.

Naked Cosmetics Holographic Highlighter Collection: If you are into crazy highlighting shades, then this is your palette. Usually, these colors of highlight are not my cup of tea (green highlighter anyone?) but I did enjoy the top row of highlighters in this palette. I guess it’s a good way to get me out of my highlighting comfort zone!

Cover FX Shimmer Veil in Amethyst: My favorite product in the box this month! This is a liquid eyeshadow similar to the Stila Magnificent Metals or ColorPop Supernova Shadows. This is color is a gorgeous light pink with purple reflects. Ah love!

Bellapiere Cosmetic Glitter in Cosmic Purple: I didn’t actually  try this product out for a few different reasons. 1) I already had a glittery eyeshadow on my lids. 2) I don’t actually own any glitter glue and that is definitely needed for this product. So, I’m not sure about this product. Seems impractical since we didn’t get any glitter glue with it.

Vintage Cosmetics Smokey Eye Pencil: I was shocked at how smooth this eyeliner is – especially for a pencil! This might be my new go-to water line pencil!
